Reminders 10-13-09

Hey UNICEF-ers,

We hope you guys enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend, here are a few things that we’re up to in the next weeks!

The Loonie Walk for Water – Once again, a reminder that there is an info-session meeting for the Loonie Walk for Water event happening this Wednesday at 5:30 in MSC 297 (located at the SU offices). Please come out if you’re interested in joining the Loonie Walk for Water event! If you’re not able to make the meeting but still want to participate in the event on October 30th at 12-1, you may contact one of our project managers to arrange a time to obtain your pledge sheets!

The Pumpkin Carve – Halloween is closing in quickly and what better way to usher in the festivities than with a pumpkin carve! Our annual Pumpkin Carve event is happening on Thursday Oct 29th at the Science Foyer from 10am-4pm. Come down and show your creativity by carving an awesome design or even volunteer in the setup and take-down of the event! If you’re unable to volunteer that day, come down anyways and vote for the best design!

UNICEF on Campus @ U of C Fundraising Goal for Fall ’09 – Through all the excitement about our upcoming events, we forgot to mention our financial goal for the Fall ’09 semester. We’ve set a goal of $1500 and while it seems like a lofty goal, it’s definitely achievable, especially with the General Membership this year! It was originally set with the purchase of 3 water pumps in mind but since inflation reared its ugly head, the amount will only cover the construction of two. However, this does not mean that the excess funds will go to waste! The surplus money can go towards buying cheaper items such as water sanitation tablets and clean water supplies, so let’s beat expectations for the kids of developing nations!

That’s all for now, stay tuned for more info!
